    What an awesome revelation this is!

    When you shared this with me, it blew me away. Often times we don’t feel like we’re blooming and budding, growing and progressing because of those “muddy” or “not so cute” seemingly messy situations, those periods of waiting…

    But when we yield, the process has a payoff… And when looking back… we are better because of it. Yes Robin. Thank you in advance.

    I’m sowing this book into a few people and I believe that along with the others, this chapter will especially be an eye-opener and source of encouragement for many!

    I love the metaphor. Comparing us to the Lotus Flower and how we bloom regardless of the muddy situations that we sometimes find oursevles in. Truly sage wisdom.
